Bottle. Pours a hazy straw color with a big white head. Smells of esters, spice, bubblegum, honey and caramel. Tastes more or less like it smells with more pronounced yeast, sweet and spicy notes.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Bottle at Hop Leaf in Chicago. Solid and hazy gold body. Sweet yeasty honey aroma. Sweet honey, lavendar, malt. Not too bad, but a bit boring.

Hazy orange-bronze body. Smells like yeasty Honeycomb cereal w/ sweet apricots. Very yeasty flavor - sweet pale malt under banan, apricot, light leafy hops and dry minerals. A nice beer, easy to drink.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2005
On-tap at the Muddy Pig: Slightly murken golden color with a small dense white cap of smoothed over foam. Served in a Duvel tulip glass keeping the lacing from sticking along the inside curve of the glass and always quickly dripping back down into the liquid. Pleasing aroma of spicy grasses, lemon, honey, melon husks, sweet candy, and pepper. Quite an herbal mixture on the nose. Sweetness seems to be the mainstay with the honey and candy stuff but those spices keep poking through with balanced effort. Taste...mmm, quite nice here, very sweet and tender with adequate showings of malt and dark lemon tones. Sweetness is akin to dark candy chews and/or melony stuff. Great little spicy finish with grasses, pepper, and alcoholic phenols floating by as the sweet malt texture continues to surge across the entire palate. Feel is boldly set within a medium creamy body. Chewy in some respects as its malt texture seems to really stay forward and present as the after effects of lemon, grassy hops, and spice make for nice balancing additions to its character. A malt sided Saison with nice grassy/lemon sided hops and easy goin’ alcoholic touches and spice. Drinks down a bit slower after awhile, as at first, this pulls you in to drink it more, but you slow down after the malt body makes its home in your head.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2005
Bottle from ABSdrinks. Muddy light amber colour. Medium creamy head, lots of little acid bubbles. Yeasty aroma, leaves, grass, hint of citrus. The honey aroma is not as dominant as expected by the name of the beer. The taste is quite acidic, with a very long diminishing acidic finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Pours a very hazy light straw color with a massive tight thick white head. Aroma is slightly cork, salt, hay, and some herbal notes. Flavor is surprisingly tart and citrusy- almsot tangy. A good amount of lemon is noticed along with some dry hay and a light bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty dry which is good, and also has a little bit of acidity in the end. This one is pretty bland overall. I’ll stick with the regular veille provision or the avec les bon voeux.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Pours an active hazy blond with a firm white head. Horsey, minerally, wet cat and sweet damp grain aroma. Lightly sweet and spicy flavor with some grain. Nice body but finishes rather flabby and flat. Still, a great ale. Under rated IMO.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2005
25cl bottle. Cloudy orange. Minimal head. Soft honey aroma. Sweet honey flavour but not syrupy. Bit of a sour, bitter baking soda body counter balances the sweetness. Alcohol is hidden. Very enjoyable although hard to describe.
